Hi

I am trying to find out the IP address of a machine that can only be telneted to. No mouse, video or keyboard ports exist.

I dont have a clue what subnet it would be on

Is there a quick easy way to find it?

Thanks
Adam

If you have a DHCP server, you can check the leases.  Also, you can check WINS if you know the name.

Also, if you know the name of the machine, enter:
nbtstat -a MACHINENAME

The -a is case sensitive; replace machinename with the name of the machine.

Do you have a port scanner that can look for specific ports?  If so, scan for the port and narrow the field by which machines have the port open.

If it's connected to a Cisco switch and you know which interface, use the command 'show mac address-table' to determine what MAC address it is, then show arp to see if it knows the L3 address. Otherwise if you know it's MAC anyway just check the arp tables of nearby machines with arp -a.
